I embarked on my blanket, using the stashbuster scarf pattern, i.e. 280 sts in g st, one row in each colour, only instead of a mere 7 inches I shall make 3 x 24 inch sections. Planning to finish it before the cold weather, when the charity it’ll be going to will be needing them.
Obviously I don’t want joins mid row, but how to tell whether my bagful of mini oddments would each be enough?
In the end I unwound from a large ball enough to equal 4 times the length of our 3 seat sofa (seats only, not arms.)
And lo, 3 1/2 times the length is enough, allowing for ends to be made into tassels.
Why I didn’t think of this straight away is anyone’s guess, but I can be notoriously thick when it comes to practical matters
Very satisfying to be using up so many bits that wouldn’t be much use for anything else.
